Invest in Futures

Invest in Futures is an initiative that unites the financial services industry with the aim of helping disadvantaged young people become economically active.

Launched in 2005 by Michael Marks CVO, CBE, the initiative has raised more than £16.5 million for The Prince’s Trust, supporting tens of thousands of young people into jobs, education or training.

The centrepiece of Invest in Futures is the annual gala dinner, supported by leading members of hedge fund communities, senior investment banking executives from Europe and the US and high net worth supporters of The Prince’s Trust.

Each year the event has become more glamorous and high-profile. Previous performers include Eric Clapton, Jools Holland, Sting, Joss Stone and Bryan Adams in venues such as Buckingham Palace, the Natural History Museum and the Roundhouse.

Invest in Futures 2014

The 2014 Invest in Futures event, supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, brought together London’s high-flyers at the Savoy Hotel and raised £1.5 million in just one night.

Hosted by actress Joanna Lumley OBE and comedian Rob Brydon MBE, the fundraising event featured a performance by Brian Ferry and an exclusive charity auction.
